, which romney are voters going to get? which romney would they elect. the liberal one who ran for senate in '94, the pragmatic governor, the candidate of this year's gop primary? all politicians change positions over time. his changes raise questions over his core principles and make the details all the more troubling. would he stand-up to his own party, especially house republicans who undercut ohioan john boehner's attempts. how do you respond to that? >> look at his record. the guy created jobs. he's a job creator. we need that. jobs are the greatest moral issue when people are working, families are stronger. number two, he was governor of massachusetts. they went from deficits to surpluses from job loss to job creation. then you look at the olympics where he was a pure leader. look at his history. it tells you who he is. he's pragmatic, no question about it. he's also tough, firm and understands job creation. in terms of people not getting him, the first debate, i have never seen a debate have this much impact. the first debate gave people the chance to see, romney is smart, he knows
. separately, here was the "cleveland plain dealer" editorial last sunday.as which romney are voters going to get. which romney would they elect, the rather liberal one who ran for the senate in 1994, the pragmatic governor? all politicians change positions over time but romney's frequent changes raise questions about his core principles and make the lack of details all the more troubling. they make you wonder if he would stand up to the more extreme elements of his own party. especially the house republicans who undercut ohioan john boehner's attempt to get a budget deal. >> look at his record. a guy created jobs, he's a job creator. we need that. jobs are the greatest moral issue in american today, when people are working, families are stronger and children are better off.f. number one. number two, he was governor from massachusetts, they went from deficits to surpluses, from job loss to job creation. then you look at the olympics where he was a pure leader. you look at the history and it tells you who the guy is he's pragmatic, no question about it. but he's also tough and he's firm and
week now. i dot know if romney's argument really work. >> voters did think that president obama won that last debate. >> they do. they do. >> changed his entire foreign policy overnight, who is this guy? and why are we talking about how this affects the race? than we have someone who has no core at all, changed it a dozen times to appeal to the market share he's talking to. >> what it comes down to around actual argument about exhibitions and that argument is, one side conditions aren't that great. but they were much worse and they have gotten somewhat better. the obama people go look at romney's policy, exactly what george bush said in 2001. romney saying, look at what the president is for and that hasn't work. >> george, i want to bring this to you, they have started to send out these economic plans right now. yesterday in new hampshire, he talked about mitt romney's record in massachusetts, basically get out the vote message. >> that's right. they're saying romney is the candidate of change, we don't like the change. andrew said, vote against romney because he would balloon the d
heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both of them clearly know it's a very important state. but at this juncture, as the two still will descend on ohio with just a few days before election day, if everything goes according to plan, what do ohioans need to hear from them? >> i think they need assurance from the president that things will get better. things are bad, everyone knows that, but that they'll improve, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectively. governor romney needs to continue to persuade voters that obama has had his four years, it's time f
to likely voters. president obama 44%. governor romney, 51%. why after all this time does governor romney beat president obama when it comes to the question of who could best handle the economy? >> well, first of all, candy, there's a plethora of polls out there. >> a lot of them sort of show this, david. >> i actually prefer the cnn polls. i like the one you put out on friday where we were ahead in ohio and in states like ohio and elsewhere people know the reality, which is the president took tough steps to save our economy from freefall to save the auto industry, which governor romney would not have done, and he has a vision of how to move this economy forward. that will rebuild the middle class. that will -- and governor romney who runs around this country now saying i represent change doesn't represent change. he what he represents is a return to a failed task. >> still more feel think the governor would do better with the economy than the president. >> in that particular poll -- in that particular poll, candy, that may be the case, but in reality that's not the case. if you look at w
debate was romney folks feeling like it was all of a sudden okay to be proud to be out as romney voter. >> true. >> i did not see that before that. i think there are a number of folks who are feeling visceral emotions out there. i have been certainly evangelizing to my colleagues in d.c. about the need to get out into the swing states in the last few days of the election. i think some of this comes down to raw gut. i don't think the momentum is happening. i think ohio is going to be key. we are seeing romney go to maine to pick up the one electoral vote we can get from there. they are racing all over covering their bases. it's going to be super interesting. maine and nebraska, barack obama won the congressional district in nebraska last time around omaha. there are ways to get to 269, 269, tie. of course the electoral college has an even number of votes. why have that be possible, but it is possible. how do you think the romney campaign sees this? >> i think you have to think about wisconsin. wisconsin and ohio -- >> this is the big question. >> if romney wins florida, north carolina,
is still doing well with independent voters out there. but governor romney seems to be closing the gap when it comes to women voters. again we get back, ruth, to this whole deal of what's happening with the women's vote. >> it's certainly true in the swing states the president is ahead in more swing states than governor romney. however, the president's job approval rating and his number in all of these states is below 50%. that is a danger signal. >> that's not true. it's generally 50% or more. >> no, it's not. >> it is. >> >> i'm having flash backs to debates, guys. >> i won't interrupt you, if you don't interrupt me. >> we should get a lawyer to litigate this. >> schieffer: go ahead. >> if you go to realclearpolitics.com it's 47%, 48% for the president. that's a danger signal for him. in addition, since the denver debate, independent voters have continued to move to governor romney, and independent voters are, of course, the deciders. i believe that the president has to do a little better both in the swing states and nationally. as an incumbent, if you don't support him now or you're unde
on the electoral college was showing obama at 290 and romney is 217. the crucial swing women voters in swing states, whose side are they going to come down on and why? game.s a ground i don't think the republican comments help the republican party in that way. at the same time, it's going to be about -- it's who do we trust? the ads i would like to see -- the grounds game the getting out the vote. >> that's right. whether this franken storm effects it -- i would like to see ads of doing dishes and taking care of my baby. that's what would win my vote. >> let's talk about what has moved some swing women. it was the first debate appearance from governor rick r. he was excellent. that evente gave a lot of swing voters permission to support romney someone who they now see as an alternative. >> that's right. no women's issues were raised in that first debate. when we saw in the second debate when the presidential candidate answered a question around pay equity, it shows us once again how the republican party fails to address the issues that are specifically important. >> that was not true. romney talked
. we also know that romney's policies will increase the debt. massively, immediately. >> but voters believe that obama's will do so much more harm. voters unfortunately are choosing between two men, each of whom are far from perfect, i think that's why you see a lot of -- it's very negative. >> one of whose math will lead to balanced budgets. and one whose math will not. >> change, that was an interesting change in mitt romney's speech this week, he kept talking about big change, you want big change, i can bring you big change. what challengers do it. we heard bill clinton do it. we heard barack obama do it. certainly. the hope and change thing is now benefiting the republicans this time. >> it transcended to their signage. it really is their closing message. >> more than election census, 1980 and 1964, this is about the proper scope and actual confidence of government. it will come down to a basic feeling that people have, who understands government better? >> i think that's fair. though, it will be interesting to see, if you had a huge hurricane that affected sometimes -- >> say a
by double digits in 2008. my guess this week says mitt romney may have suburban voters to thank. michael, great to have you back. >> it's go to be with you again, paul. >> where do you think this race stands right now? is romney surging as much as the polls appear to make it seem? >> yeah. i think romney is ahead in the race in the national race. i think he is within striking distance of the 270 eelectoral votes he needs, and the areas of the country where he made the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt
have president obama leading mitt romney by five points when counting both early voters and ohioans who will actually vote on election day. but the overall race is a dead heat among ohioans who are going to cast their ballot on november 6. so how does president obama or mitt romney break the stalemate among the voters? they can basically either woo the undecideds or fire up the base. for president obama, it has become increasingly clear that the strategy is about one word, early. >> we can vote early in illinois, we can vote early in illinois. just like you can vote right now in florida. p just like you can vote early in colorado. just like you can vote early here in nevada. you can vote early. anybody who is here who has not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vote. vote. vote. >> so did you get the message obama supporters some vote, vote, vote, early, early, early. it is a message directed specifically at the base. and to drive the point home about early voting, president obama went home to cast his vote this past thursday in chicago. this is the first time a sitting president ha
for romney. is this going to become a matter of knocking on doors and getting voters out, and is romney at a disadvantage because of the organization? >> no. it's not about offices, it's about ideas. and what's driving the campaign in the later stages is the fact that with this crushing unemployment of 8% nationally, with national debt now $6 trillion higher under this president, gas prices doubling, i think what the independent voters, the undecideds want to know about who has the best ideas the next four years and i think increasingly they believe it's mitt romney with his plan. >> you have to get your voters out. we've seen the polls razor tight here. you have a storm coming. are you at all concerned that -- let's assume power could be out in a lot of these places through election day. is that now a card? >> it's seven days from the time the storm passes until election day. we've taken precautions to move up polling places to higher spots for restoration. the power company is well aware of that. i don't think it will interfere with voting. the ground game is the best i've seen in my
day. today in new hampshire the president tried to win over the state's undecided voters, arguing mitt romney made empty promises to keep taxes low for middle class americans, accusing him of raising fees as governor of neighboring massachusetts. >> when he's asked about it he said these weren't taxes. these were fees. but keep in mind, there were higher fees to be a barber. higher fees to become a nurse. >> reporter: the romney campaign fired back calling the president's accusations desperate. meanwhile, mr. obama continues to field questions about his administration's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate on benghazi including with msnbc's "morning joe" co-hosts joe scarborough and mika brzezinski. >> if we find out that there was a big breakdown, they will be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i'm responsible. and i don't shy away from that responsibility. >> reporter: the full interview will air monday. traveling with the president, in new hampshire, kristen welker, nbc news. >> reporter: this is peter zander in lando lakes, florida, where mitt romney is tryi
romney have to do to win the state. >> he has to win over a lot of afluent voters necessary suburbian areas that haven't voted republican in the last couple of presidential election. areas with which republicans used to win but trended democratic over the last 20 years. on the cultural issues and he has to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in other states. there are different ohios and he has to gain in different places on different issues and appeals. >> michael you looked deeper in ohio and picked out one county that may be the key to the state of ohio. why and which county. franklin county includes the state capt capt of -- capital of columbus. franklin was a republican stronghold and a solidly republican. and columbus is the fastest growing metroarea in ohio
. chris: mitt romney's mind game is to call heavily the new change agent. and inviting voters to hop on the winning train. >> you're seeing this movement growing. you're seeing people come together to say we love america. we recognize we can do better. i came in and some of the folks here were holding signs, democrats for romney, all right? i love that. i love that. chris: well, the question is, is mitt romney really wenning or is this a psychological game in which he's getting the democrats to be demoralized while all this talk of him being ahead? >> beats me. usually you have a gut feeling about it. i have no gut feeling about this election. but i will say this. that calling -- that optimism and saying it's a big deal is more -- is more fundamentally american and more optimistic and more positive, i think, and so i would give romney slightly the upper hand on this message rather than saying you got to go out ask vote. chris: you may not like the things you are wut what happens if we lose the election seems to be the message. >> and that people like to go with a winner if he can pro
, so what will it take to sway the undecided voters who have yet to commit? joining me, a romney supporter, congressman, thank you for your time today. >> hey, glad to be with you. >> reporter: stephanie cutter said this morning, they have momentum, they are racking up a number of key editorial endorsements and they feel good about where they are. how do you respond? >> i wouldn't trade places with them. i think there is an air of desperation at team obottom a. mitt romney's rolling, he got the great endorsement from the des moines register, the polls show us moving in the right direction. i think the country knows its off track. we can't afford four more years. they feel comfortable, they are willing to make that change. >> shannon: democrats have repeatedly said, they believe they hold the advantage with the early voting, which in some cases started weeks ago and maybe before the folks made up their minds in the first deigate, the second debate, the third debate. how do you think that's going to impact the race? >> the first debate will be one of the most pivotal moments and ju
-american voters and singleles and crowd. and they would like to get the same turn out. romney has to go in the old neighborhood in the outer suburbs was columbus and by the way, that is where a number of romny and ryan campaigns. >> we are not ready for the yet. but who do you see winning the election? >> i see romney winning the election. i see him generally ahead in the polls and i see him, i see president obama at fren percent. that is not because people don't know him. you have 53 percent last time. 100 percent of the people know him and observed him closely for four years and you can't help but observe the president closely and only 47 percent are voting for him f. the election were held would he have the 270 vote majority nailed i think so but not sure. we have seen the situation where winninglet popular vote didn't win the electorial vote. but he's clearly within reach of 270 electoral votes. >> i have a lot confidence and you are usually right when everybody else is wrong. we'll fiped out how it turned out. >> we'll see if i am red-faced. >> i am sure you will not be. >> michael marone. ne
,. >>> and this is a fox news alert. the saturday polls are out and they show mitt romney holding on to his slight lead. how slight? which way are the voters moving? ace pollster scott rasmussen. how are you doing? >> doing great. i'm getting ready for sandy myself because we are right in the target zone. but there is a presidential election going on. >> geraldo: right in as bury park on the jersey shore. better have your rubber shoes on. >> we are all ready. >> geraldo: okay. give us the main daily tracking poll first. nationally speaking what does rasmussen report? >> we find right now, mitt romney is at 50% and barack obama is at 46 for the last five days romney has been at the 50% mark and had generally a three-point lead inching up a little bit today. something that has been the norm ever since that first presidential debate. romney with a slight lead but nothing he can feel comfortable with. >> geraldo: now, they say romney has the momentum but obama has the math. let's talk about the math the. some states we will be talking about, the battleground states. start with wisconsin, scott. how does th
beyond romney's grass at this point, a large part because obama is doing better with white voters that he is across the country, in large part in the north and west of ohio and northeast of ohio, the industrial belt where the auto bailout made a difference. it is so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday, introducing romney in defiance, ohio, to a huge crowd, said, "we have got to talk about this auto bailout thing tonight." they are still trying to explain it. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio, he will carry it was gone -- if obama carries ohio, he will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one point or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will
. >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasped at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he is across the country in large part in the northwest ohio and northeast ohio, which is the industrial belt, ere the auto bailout really made difference. its so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday night as he introduced romney in defiance, ohio for a huge cro is said "we have got to talk about this auto thing tonight." eyre still trying to explain that. >> ken romney eastwind without oh? -- can romney win witho ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reachch. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> v virginia will still probably end op in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls when we started the program and romney is up on average -- >> there is another poll that shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and even with the heavair onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important in the state, supports barack obama. >> new hampshire cou
a compassionate mitt romney? >> well look, i think voters of all stripes basically when you have a potential catastrophe like the hurricane, approaching, they want to see you put aside politics for at least a day or two while the storm approaches and emphasize that people need to, instead of thinking about politics, at least on the eastern seaboard, focus on preparing for the hurricane. it's an appropriate move from the governor and you see president obama doing it now. shifting around his campaign schedule. canceling some events in virginia. you know, particularly i mean there's obviously more onus on obama because he is the president. he's in charge of the country and therefore, in charge of the response in many ways. so this is, this is a natural thing and probably a pretty appropriate step for both campaigns. >> alex roarty and joanne reed. we'll have to leave it there and we'll bring you back later in the hour. folks, perhaps you can hear behind me, the gospel music that has filled the air here in gainesville over the past few hours. and also the smell of barbeque ribs, we'll have more
but mitt romney cannot ignore these people either. these are lower information voters and not people following the elections as closely. as many of the cspan voters are. these people can be persuaded to vote for mr. runyan. both campaigns will be out there working very hard to get the vote on election day. host: quick comment? caller: i wish the gentleman would look at the desk moines, iowa race. that was a very fevered endorsement that he gave. the economy is linked to what is going on in other countries. that is an endorsement that was given. thank you all. host: one final call and one tweet - this is in " the new york times" this morning -- guest: ironically, if al gore had asked for a statewide recounts in florida, he would have won. the supreme court would not have shut it down. the media came in afterwards and requested those ballots. he would have lost under the recounted s four which was to do only the high democratic counties. there were a lot of democratic votes for gore in those counties that were not the deep blue counties where he thought he would get the votes. the less
where maybe even in 2008 newspapers endorsed barack obama and now they're endorsing mitt romney, that's interesting and newsworthy and i think could sway voters. others than that, no. you know the "washington post" is going to endorse barack obama. you know "the new york times" is going to endorse barack obama. >> right. clearly the newspapers matter in local elections and can matter in low turnout primaries. the "des moines register" and caucuses is gold. the argument is it's not just saying, hey, votes for this guy, a newspaper like the "times" makes arguments in favor of a candidacy, which can get picked up by others and commentators. does that just disappear into the echo chamber? >> i think it largely does. i agree with lauren. i would point out that many of these editorials are substantive in their pointing -- they're pointing out important stuff which goes to our last conversation. i'm not sure about the "des moines ridgester's" endorsement. i don't know how many people are really left who are in that persuadable category -- >> about 12. >> right. so 12 people -- >> in ohio --

(ezequiel landaverde/giants fan):"it's game seven, it's a huge game. another debate really isn't gunna do much for me." for some people, sports isn't the only reason the debates did not generate interest. polls and questionable facts are playing a role.

political cliche ever. john: i can't believe voters like this. when romney, at the debate, said, oh, my wife was at a rally in denver, and a woman came up with a baby in her arms saying, ann, my husband lost his job, can you help us? it's not phony to people? >> well, you know, i think it's the best people's got. i think both guys are trying to be as human as they can. >> that's ridiculous; rit? why should the guys have to pretend to be human? >> they have to. >> presumably, they are human. we'd like to see evidence of that occasionally on the trail, but, you know, as we saw with the clips played earlier, when you get out there and say the phrasing, and what you say to your bar at the buddy, that's on c-span and cnn, there forever. john: you're a business strategy guy, councilled intel, and things they do, politicians could do. >> yeah, one of the things you're seeing in a lot of business marketing is finally taking a different approach than the spokesperson model wenow which is you get one person, a guy or girl, to go out there and talk on behaver of the company. you see the companies putti
to be? this is about trying to run up romney's numbers among low information blue collar white voters, particularly older white voters who are already uncomfortable with the idea of this guy being in the white house. not a democrat being in the white house, this democrat. this president. the person of barack obama is what is offensive to old cranks like john sununu who, by the way, hasn't had an intelligent thought since the reagan administration. why is he the top surrogate for mitt romney? because he speaks to that guy, archie bunker. >> you know, i have to think that all this stuff, i grew up with watching it, from the south mainly, from but somewhere from rizzo and philadelphia, and stuff like that, ben tillman and george wallace, and, you know, all those characters down there used to do it, but now it's the sophisticated guys, governors of big states. rich guy in new york, trump. all over the place they keep doing this. >> what we see is a continuum. it goes all the way from the birtherism as we talked about a way to define barack obama as literally being foreign, because he eith
%. in a poll today, romney has a 60-point lead among enthusiastic voters. so i think if the race is frozen in time, it's to the governor's advantage. >> the ppp poll shows among independent voters, a 16-point advantage. 66% disapprove of barack obama. to the degrethere are persuadable voters in the tight election contests and the small number 7 states. it is right now, looking like those are going to break toward governor romney. >> we will see, the issue is clearly favorable for obottom a. the auto buyout has hurt romney significant. the issue environment in virginia, i live in northern virginia, gifavorrable to obam a. i think you will see a very interesting election night. i think we will be looking at a few of these states. we may be up very late. but obama is doing well in the states he had to win to get over 270 electoral votes. i think romney is hurt by some of the outrageous things that the senate candidates in missouri and indiana have said about a woman's right thochoose. romney hasn't been able to pull away from those candidates. i think there is issues that are working very muc
